    I’d always assumed “ninny” was short for “nincompoop”. But when I compare the dates here to the ones in your old article on “nincompoop”, it looks like “ninny” predates it by a few decades.

  2. Bill:

    When i was younger the term ninny was defined as you say but was always taken to also mean a breast, as with boob having the same double meaning, Did I make this up ar soes anyone else recall this same double entendre?

  3. Hannah:

    That is what my mother and her mother used for breast/ breast milk. Which is what led me to this site trying to figure out how they came up with that!
